Last Show Recap

Egypt Uprising & Mythology

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.

In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

Egypt Uprising & Mythology

Show Archive
Date: Monday - February 7, 2011
Host: George Noory
Guests: William Henry, Michael Shedlock

Investigative mythologist William Henry was leading a tour in Egypt when the revolution suddenly began. He recapped what he saw in Egypt, and how he escaped the chaos, violence, and military lock down, as well as his study of ancient Egypt's iconography and wisdom traditions. His tour, begun on January 19th included 24 people, and was going fine. After two days in Giza exploring the pyramids, they traveled south for a cruise on the Nile. When they flew from Cairo to Aswan to begin their cruise, they encountered a British man in the security line, who cryptically said "wait till you see what happens in Egypt next week," which in retrospect made Henry wonder if the Egyptian uprising had been carefully planned rather than spontaneous.

When they returned to Cairo on January 28th, the demonstrations had been going on for several days, and a curfew was announced. There was gunfire outside their hotel room, and tanks rolling through the area, and they didn't know if they'd get out. Cobbling together various resources, the group journeyed to the Cairo airport passing checkpoints guarded by neighborhood gangs with makeshift weapons. At the airport, mayhem reigned, as 18,000 people were all trying to go through security at the same time, and no one could print out their boarding passes because the Internet had been shut down. Henry's group pulled together as a team, and eventually all successfully got out on various planes.

He noted that Zahi Hawass, who recently created new restrictions for touring the temples, is a Mubarak follower, and as a Cabinet member, is the #3 person in their administration, and could possibly rise to power there. Henry also talked about his visit to the temple of Hathor at Denderah, which on the ceiling features images of the gods sailing on their ships of eternity. This imagery matches the way modern science depicts a wormhole, he commented.

Unemployment & the Economy

First hour guest, financial analyst Mish Shedlock talked about unemployment and the economy. It was recently announced that the unemployment rate was lowered from 9.4% to 9%, but he attributes this to people dropping out of looking for work entirely, rather than more jobs being created.
